First it was the Interactive Radar Map at weather.com refusing to load

http://www.weather.com/weather/map/interactive/Sevierville+TN+37876

All I see is a "loading" animation where the radar should appear for about a minute before being redirected to a page that says "We're sorry. The page you requested is not available. You may have used an outdated link or typed the address (URL) incorrectly. It is also possible that this page no longer exists"

That happens with every Interactive Radar Map at weather.com, not just the one for 37876

Also, I just noticed that Vimeo's video player will no longer load. Here's an example.

http://vimeo.com/17909042

All I see is an image where the video player should be.

I have mp3s on my computer that I want to play in Firefox, but when I drag it into the browser a window pops up like if I'm trying to download it. I have everything up to date (Firefox, Quicktime plugin), and I'm running Windows XP SP3. This was working last night and just started happening today. I've tried looking at the Quicktime plugin troubleshooting page and set the plugin to play mp3s in the browser but they didn't work.

Among the installed add-ins are Ghostery, Google Shortcuts, IE Tab Plus, InformEnter, Lazarus, NoScript, and ZoneAlarm Toolbar. In the other machine, most of those put icons on the status bar; here only the last does (although I told others to). I assume the "problem" is with Firefox, not the individual add-ons.

Also (related?) all of the tabs are very small, showing only icons except when the mouse hovers over them.

I installed Firefox 3.6.13 on a new laptop. Whenever I hit the Home icon, I go to the homepage, and an extra, blank page opens also. The extra page has an 'Untitled' tab. This doesn't happen with my desktop, also running 3.6.13, or with IE. This doesn't happen with other pages. If I hit the HOME icon repeatedly, an extra page opens for each entry.

All the bookmarks disappeared from Firefox 3.6.13 I browsed through all the articles in support about this, and tried the backup, but it didn't bring solution.

I have always clicked on the Red 'X' in the upper right corner of firefox to close it. Lately when I do, my CPU/RAM Usage skyrockets and ff never really closes, slowing down my entire computer. It's really annoying, and the only way I know of to stop it is to End Process on ff with the windows task manager. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

The tabs don't show anymore. However, when I click on "File" the options for "New Tab" and "Close Tab" are there. But no option to switch to another tab. ..... I want the visual tabs lined up across the top of my screen just beneath the toolbar with the + to add another, etc., back where they always were. ..... Is there simply something that got switched off? Rebooting didn't reset it, and I cannot find any such option, nor anything in "help" about it.
